Appeals court issues stay for former White House counsel Donald McGahn

Appeals court issues stay for former White House counsel Donald McGahn | 29 Nov 2019 | The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit has issued an administrative stay of a lower court's ruling ordering former White House counsel Donald McGahn to appear before Congress. In its order Wednesday night, the appeals court says it will consider issuing a longer stay and set oral arguments for a hearing Jan. 3. Obama-appointed U.S. District Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson had ruled Monday that McGahn would have to appear before Congress in response to a subpoena, rejecting the Trump administration's argument that "absolute immunity" shielded top aides from congressional questioning.
